According to Michael David Smith from Pro Football Talk, St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher has expressed his infatuation with new Internet star Randy Moss. Says Fisher:

I thought the world of him over the six or eight weeks that I think we had him,” Fisher said. “I thought he was a terrific teammate and he did a great job in our locker room.”

I am not sure how true any of those statements are, as Moss had six catches in eight games with the Titans during his brief tenure, but it's definitely interesting when Moss' weird Internet video dispatches are taken into effect.

Even though it appears Moss' decent into a madness where poop and Joe Buck are discussed, Fisher's ringing endorsement of Moss is odd because of the potential self-inflicted damage Moss is doing to himself. By appearing so candid and unapologetic, and the fact that Moss hasn't produced tangible statistics in years, he is potentially ruining whatever slim chance he already had to comeback to the NFL.

So when Fisher goes on the record and says, “If he wants to come back, obviously he’s going to need to find a home. At this point, it’s too early to say,” it leaves some doubt in everybody's minds that Fisher could be crazy enough to give Moss a second chance. The Rams are pretty decrepit at wide receiver, and St. Louis is an innocent enough city for Moss to not run wild. There isn't that much team chemistry Moss could ruin, and perhaps the stern Fisher (who, as head of the Competition Committee, has helped pave the way for touchdown dances to be all but outlawed) could turn Moss around.

But who knows? As for now, Moss is damned to the life of an Internet celebrity, which is meaningless.
